In today’s program Dr. Reminga talks about a condition that parents should pay close attention to. Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease is an uncommon name for a not-so-uncommon condition and... is actually less frightening than it sounds however, OSD, or Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease, is often overlooked or misunderstood. I turns out... Osgood Schlatter’s Disease is more common in boys than in girls between the ages of 13 and 15 years old.

With Osgood Schlatter’s Disease, or foot and leg pain in general, there can be oversight due to a lack of understanding in identifying the warning signs that cause the pain in adolescents. The reason for parents to pay close attention today is due to the fact that Osgood Schlatter’s Disease is a common cause of knee pain in growing children. Dr. Reminga states, “It’s important to remember that kids experience foot pain just like adults. Due to their rapidly growing bones and tendons… they can have confusing and often undiagnosed symptoms, if not evaluated properly.”

Dr. Reminga continues the program by providing a case-study of a patient with this condition. Dr. Reminga also addressed “growing pains” and how this can be confused with Osgood Schlatter’s Disease. He also describes how he treats this type of patient in his office at Northern Foot Care Center. Listen to this helpful and interesting program about this not-so-uncommon condition with the uncommon name… Osgood Schlatter’s Disease.
